From the Reading Public Museum:

The more than thirty works in this wide-ranging exhibition explore a variety of media, including painting, pastel, prints, photographs, sculpture and decorative arts that have been added to the Reading Public Museum’s growing collection over the past eight years. The exhibition demonstrates the vitality and broad scope of the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Thanks to the generosity of many donors — through both gifts and bequests — combined with strategic purchases, the collection has been enriched for future generations. 

The exhibition includes works by Abbott Thayer, Jane Peterson, Arrah Lee Gaul, Reginald Marsh, Alexander Calder, Chaim Gross, Norman Rockwell, Henry Moore, Louise Nevelson, Paul Jenkins, John Hultberg, Robert Indiana, George Segal, Arthur H. Smith, Peter Paone, Eileen Goodman, Bill Scott, Bernard Brenner, Gary Erbe, and Tim Barr, among others.
